Help Centre for Employers

What Direct Debit details do I need to fill in if I want to add a new payroll?

When adding a new payroll into your  employer portal, you will need to download and print the Direct Debit Instruction for pension contributions, complete your bank details and reference (this is your 4 character Employer Code followed by the 4 character Payroll Code). Then sign and date the Instruction and return it to the address marked on the form.

If you have multiple payrolls and wish to:

  1. Use the same bank account for all payrolls simply insert the payroll code for one of your payrolls and write the words FOR ALL PAYROLLS above the signature section on the form
  2. Use the different bank account for some/each, then please complete as many mandates as you need and ensure that you mark each one with the correct payroll code.
  3. Use a combination of bank accounts, please list the additional payroll codes that the instruction relates to above the signature section.
